Anyone know?

PS - I don't want to stack multiple planetaries and want a 1:20 ratio or ideally as high as possible. I'm using it for a project.
Lock the Ring gear. Then the sun gear drives the planets and you get reduction
on the planet gear carrier. It is the most reduction, the smaller the sun gear
and the larger the planets the greater the reduction ratio.
